Jean-Louis Fabiani’s recent book, Pierre Bourdieu: Un Structuralisme héroïque, offers a remarkable intellectual portrait of the great French sociologist, and has been very well received in France as a major contribution to understanding Bourdieu’s work. Fabiani traces the genealogy of Bourdieu’s major concepts—le champ, la distinction, le capital—and the genesis of his method within the space of the social sciences in the second half of the twentieth century.  He portrays Bourdieu as a kind of tragic hero who never gave up on the idea, following Emile Durkheim, that sociology should be able to establish a general theory of society.

Event co-sponsored by the Maison Française and Department of Sociology.
